Top tech trends for disruption

Disruptive technologies provide an opportunity in 2014 to reshape organizations, change business models and transform industries according to a just-released report from professional services firm Deloitte.

"Disruptive technologies – from wearable devices to cognitive analytics to crowdsourcing – present unprecedented opportunities to reimagine how work gets done, how businesses grow, and how markets and industries evolve.   But they also represent threats – and real challenges on how to balance experimentation for tomorrow with the realities of today.  Our report examines how these forces are changing business as usual and opening the door for information technology executives to inspire, provoke and harvest emerging technologies to transform how businesses operate, compete and innovate." says Bill Briggs, chief technology officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and author of Deloitte’s 5th Annual Tech Trends Report.

"Disruptive technologies present unprecedented opportunities to reimagine how work gets done, how businesses grow, and how markets and industries evolve."
The report examines the changing landscape of technology and how multiple disruptive technology forces are converging on and impacting business today. The study focuses on the next 18-24 months and is divided into two categories – enablers and disruptors.

Disruptors represent opportunities for technology executives to create sustainable positive changes in IT capabilities, business operations and business models. The current report features: CIO as Venture Capitalist, Cognitive Analytics, Industrialized Crowdsourcing, Digital Engagement, and Wearables.


Enablers are technologies in which many organizations have already invested, but new developments and opportunities have inspired new business applications, thereby warranting a fresh look. The current report features: Technical Debt Reversal, Social Activation, Cloud Orchestration, In-memory Revolution and Real-time DevOps.


Among the trends identified by Deloitte:
•    CIO as venture capitalist - CIOs who want to help drive business growth and innovation will likely need to develop a new mindset and new capabilities. Like venture capitalists, CIOs should actively manage their IT portfolio in a way that drives enterprise value and evaluate portfolio performance in terms that business leaders understand—value, risk and time horizon to reward. CIOs who can combine this with agility and align the desired talent can reshape how they run the business of IT.
